PiwiWiwi might have a silly name, but we're totally serious about New Zealand road trips.
Our campervans are fully kitted out to comfortably transport you around New Zealand checking everything our country has to offer (beaches, walks, waterfalls, vineyards, or museums - whatever floats your particular boat...)
We have vans tall enough to stand up in yet small enough to park easily. They are all well equipped - we've been campervanning for years, so know what you need and what gets in the way - you just need to bring your clothes, buy some food, and you're away. Our vans have stereos that you can plug your iPod into (you can’t have a road trip without a soundtrack) and USB charging points to keep your gadgets full of juice. For all you surfers - we're also the only company in NZ with surfboard stroage straps in our vans to keep your boards safely out of your way when you're not in the waves. For cyclists - we have bike racks for our vans too.
All of our vans are certified SELF CONTAINED so you have access to NZ's beautiful FREEDOM CAMPING spots.
Our customers seem to be happy with what we do... why not give us a go too?

Nick was a pleasure to deal with very obligingly, Tim our tall van was brilliant never any issues. Would definitely hire from piwiwiwi again 5**** service never a problem
My partner and I rented a PiwiWiwi van for a couple weeks of van tripping around the South Island and could not have asked for more from Nick at PiwiWiwi, the van, and the whole experience. The van is well designed and maintained with everything we needed for a couple's adventure and plenty of space for storage. Nick was absolutely awesome, picking us up from the airport, explaining the van well and giving us extra tips and insight for our trip, and making our rapid drop-off a breeze as well (not a small task after two weeks living in a van!) We will definitely go back to PiwiWiwi for our next van trip. Highly recommend.
We had an absolutely amazing time exploring New Zealand's south island in our Piwiwiwi campervan. The campervan itself is a stylish yet understated, reliable model, and Nick and his family have designed and kitted it out immensely, with everything you could need. After doing a lot of research into campervan rentals, I found that they were excellent value compared with many other suppliers and have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. No hassles whatsoever and always available for contact whenever required. We would recommend them to anyone looking to travel the area whilst supporting a local family. We hope to be back soon! Thanks again!
25-30 year old couple - travelled for 2 weeks.
Made our trip much easier than the initial tenting idea having somewhere warm to hide from the freezing weather. Shopped around a bit and deffinately one of the cheaper places considering the size of the vehicle you get for your money. The extra storage at the back was great which previous vans havnt had. Will be back for the next adventure.

We are first time older campervaners wanting to try it out campervanning with the thought of perhaps purchasing one. We found Nick to be exceptionally helpful and supportive. He went through everything we needed to know in a very thorough easy to understand way, allaying any concerns we may have had. The van was immaculate and the layout well planned. We especially liked the amount of storage and being able to stand up inside the van. On route we texted Nick to ask advice and got an immediate response from him. We would have no hesitation in recommending Piwikiwi Campervans.
We used the campervan to do a small roof trip of the South Island over Easter. The van performed well. They are well presented and easy to use with great support by Nik. A great way to travel
Nick at PiwiWiwi was so accomodating - we were stoked to find a solid, easy-to-park camper that could take our mountain bikes. Had a great few days up in the mountains, the van had everything we needed, and was such a clever, functional design. Cheers!!!
We had a great experience with PiwiWiwi Campers. Good communication with Nick. He picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, gave a good run down of the camper, including little tricks to best utilize the camper. The camper is easy to drive and interior clean, tidy and is well laid out with everything you need. Plenty of storage space. No need to hook up to a powered site each day, as the battery charges as you drive, and you can charge phones via the handy USB ports in the kitchen area. All in all we had a hassel free holiday and would rent again.

We hired a Hiace campervan from Nick for two weeks in February 2021. It was great. The van was clean, comfortable, reliable, fully self-contained and fun. Nick was helpful and walked us through all the vans features. He also picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel after we returned the van. A hell of a nice guy who knew the van inside out. We would recommend PiwiWiwi Campervans to anyone who wants to travel easily around NZ in a compact, no-unnecessary-frills, campervan.
Piwiwiwi was a fantastic choice for our 3 week campervan experience. When we picked up the van Nick (very friendly owner) gave a comprehensive tour around the van and answered all our questions clearly and patiently which made us feel really comfortable from the start. The van was fitted and kitted out very thoughtfully with lots of storage room (we had the hi-top for two people). The van was automatic and easy to drive - no probs getting into parking. During our trip we met with a few travelers who had rented similar vans from one of the other bigger companies and many had stories of annoying things breaking - we always felt very smug we had chosen piwiwiwi!! W poi old 100% rent again. Thanks again Nick for a great van!
We hired a PiwiWiwi camper for 35 days and had the best time! We gave Nick less than 48 hours notice that we were interested in hiring the van and he was still able to get it sparkling clean and stocked up for our adventure. The layout of the van is great and worked really well for us (especially on the West Coast where rain and sandflies make cooking outside a not very enjoyable experience!) Lots of storage and the bed was huge for the two of us. Had no problems with the vehicle. Will definitely be recommending and renting again from these guys for our next NZ adventure!

My partner and I rented a PiwiWiwi camper van for our 24 days holiday in South Island.
We highly appreciate our experience and it’s been higher than our expectations from the booking to the drop off at the end of our holiday.
It is a local company next to Christchurch and Nick been very helpful and made the rental very easy, pick up from our hotel and drop us back after our holiday.
The camper van was spotless and you have everything you need for your holidays. Gas cooker and handy kitchen which make it perfect to continue to cook some nice meal during the road trip.
The top for us was the high top, behind able to stand up in the van is a great confort !
We really enjoy to have had a reliable and clean van for our holiday and had no issues.
We know it’s always a big deal to choose which company to rent from as you don’t know what to expect, specially if it is not a big national or international name but we are happy to have chosen local with PiwiWiwi and we highly recommend !
Awesome campervan and a great company - would thoroughly recommend to anyone. We had the van for a few weeks, and had a great time with no issues. The van was very clean and fresh, and kitted out with everything we needed, including a bike rack for our 2 MTB. Really well designed van with heaps of storage space for all our outdoor gear, and it was great to be able to stand up inside on rainy days. Drove well with no problems. Fits into all normal parking spaces which was helpful for parking in busier places.
Really friendly company - Nick was easy to contact at all points and really helpful. The collection and drop off at the airport also made the whole trip nice and easy. Overall great value for money, and would use again for future camper trips.
